Angolan PR congratulates Lula da Silva and wants to “rescue” bilateral relations

The Angolan President, João Lourenço, expressed “warm congratulations” on the election of Lula da Silva, as President of Brazil, considering it a sign of “hope and prosperity” for Brazilians, expressing willingness to “rescue” bilateral relations.
For João Lourenço, the choice of Lula da Silva as Brazil’s highest magistrate translates into “for the Brazilian people, the hope that, under your leadership, the Brazilian nation will follow the paths of prosperity” based on democratic values, social justice, and inclusion.
Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was elected on Sunday as President of the Federative Republic of Brazil, beating Jair Bolsonaro, who has led the South American country in recent years.
The Angolan President recalls that Angola and Brazil have accumulated a recent past of rich memories of bilateral relations that “need to be rescued.”
And, therefore, “I believe that the historical ties of friendship and brotherhood between our peoples will encourage us to work hard to strengthen existing bilateral cooperation relations between our governments,” in the interest of Angola and Brazil.
In his message made public today, also addressed to Lula da Silva, “best wishes for his personal well-being and success in his honorable mission for which he was appointed by the Brazilian people’s choice.”
